Today we visited Reading College to see Reading Rep. perform the play "Twas the night before Christmas". A one woman performance telling the story of a Santa Scientist’s journey to meet a certain, round-bellied, twinkly eyed chap.
We were firstly entertained by some elves in a room decked out as Santa’s workshop. With letters from children asking for various gifts, the scene was set.
Then we entered a lovely intimate theatre which was dressed as a scene from the North Pole with a moving image projected onto a screen depicting falling scow scenes from around the world, from Hawaii to Mumbai.
The show was acted brilliantly and confidently and a magical scene was created a lovely atmosphere, culminating with presents for all the children with Santa’s arrival.
Have a very merry Christmas, and come back in the New Year to discover what I get up to in 2015.
